The Zen utilizes a pearl version of the S77 Response cover combined with a gigantic symmetric core. The S77 Response Pearl Cover provides the strongest reaction we have ever put in an 800 Series ball. The Zen will be a great ball to open your angles up with on medium to heavy patterns. The Meditate Core is the biggest core we ever put into a bowling ball. A bigger core means more hitting power combined with a more consistent shape on the lanes. The Zen pushes the limits of core dynamics.

The Meditate Core is the largest core, volumetrically speaking, that we have ever put into a bowling ball. A bigger core means more hitting power combined with a more consistent reaction. Throughout testing the Meditate Core provided that wide “footprint” on the lane that all bowlers love to see.

S77 Response Coverstock

The S77 Response Pearl Cover was the obvious choice to follow up on the success of the S77 Response Solid Cover. The pearl version of this cover will provide the most skid/flip reaction we have ever put in the 800 Series. The Zen will be a great ball to open your angles with on medium-heavy patterns.

The Zen is an awesome ball!
I find the Zen to be perfect on medium oil conditions or on oily lanes after my Zen Soul starts overhooking. The Zen will go longer and carry just as hard as the Zen Soul , another great ball. Not sure why you discontiniued both.

I've only had my Zen since May of this year. I like the smoothness off of the back and is very forgiving. I drill it 5X5 from my PAP. On 9/22/2022 I bowled 279, 268, and 267 for a 814 series.

Having shot my highest series of 645 (as of this posting) with this ball, I can tell this thing will be a ball forever in my arsenal. This ball is gonna hook on Ice, and then it'll come back and LAUGH at you. The way it blends out the midlane and then RIPS a huge turn on the backend makes this one of the best pearl balls I have ever thrown in my life. It's so versatile, and SO easy to use!

“That Zen ball!”
2020-2021 this ball is still doing wonders for the bowling community! I can hardly keep them in my shop for more then a few days. Very strong symmetric pearl unlike anything I’ve ever seen before! There isn’t much more to say other then to just let the ball speak for itself! If you haven’t, get one now!

Zen WOW!
Never thought I would find a symetrical ball that rivaled my Storm Gravity Shift! Saw the nubers on the ZEN and had to have one. Once I threw 5 frames with it I almost cried. It is even better than the Gravity Shift through the mid-lane and screams off the break point. I am an old guy (started bowling in the 50's) so have been through a lot of changes in our sport, so to say a ball matches or exceeds my favorite ball of all time is saying alot. The ZEN does that and I will be getting one form my son at Christmas. His game is much different than mine but I know it will fit him well.

Zen Pearl
Using a basic layout (Pin above fingers on grip line 5 1/2" from PAP), Cg 1/2" right of grip center) has given me a ball that I can use on a THS, a Kegel 35' sport pattern, the PBA50 John Petraglia 46' . Perfect go to ball after the Reality starts to burn up. This ball is a must have pearl.

A Unicorn
I am a higher-than-average speed stroker/tweener. Avg first ball speed is 16-17 and around 350 revs.

I can play this ball straighter on fresh and move left throughout league play or even get very deep with it when necessary in tournaments. Played on 38ft to 48ft patterns with it thus far. Always reads the mids and always comes off the spot. Reliable, benchmark shape for a shiny pearl but what sets it apart is the versatility and the way it responds to hand position.

I have never done it personally, but have seen several others adjust the surface on this ball and attack the lane from several different angles, it doesn't quit.

This is the best pearl I have thrown from any brand and will probably be the first ball I ever buy more than one of.

Great Benchmark Ball
The Zen is a fantastic ball to use as a benchmark ball. The shell and core combination makes for the to read the lanes from the heads to pins on most conditions, recreational and sport patterns.

All condition ball
Got this ball just about 4 weeks ago, and it has totally changed my arsenal. Typically as i migrate left i reach a point where i need to change balls, but not with the Zen. It is just as devastating to the pins up 5 as it is swinging from 20 to 2.

What a Ball!!
My Pro Shop recommended this ball, when I had originally wanted to purchase another make and model. I'm glad he did! Very predictable ball reaction. Smooth off the spot. First time out of the box, 642. Last week, 717. I'm looking forward to rolling this ball more and more, as the lanes dictate (and as I continue to break it in). When making the change to the Zen, it's an easy read for me, now, knowing what I know about this ball. I can make the change, and know exactly what it's going to do when hit hits the lane surface. It's nice to watch the pins fly off the pin deck at such a low trajectory. This is a must have if any arsenal.

Best 900 Global ball ever
Been using 900 Global since 2009. This is the most complete ball I have had, great on the fresh, when the lanes start to break down just small moves needed to keep the ball in play.

Big time performace
Extremely excited to drill the Zen and as everyone who has knows - it does not disappoint. RH handed, 14mph power stroker, drilled it 5 x 4 x 2 1/4. For my lower track it comes out pin up over the middle finger. OOB was crazy impressive.
Haven't seen something that shiny in a pearl be that much of a monster in oil. Ball gives me a ton revving in the mid lane and a super hard arc on the back. Its a lot of ball. Opens up the lane for me quite a bit. Able to play some deep extreme angles without sacrificing any carry or squirt. Hit it with 4000 and it smoothed out the aggressive backend enough for me to be able to square up 2-3 boards and keep me in play longer. Just a dynamite symmetrical. You want hook throughout the lane with shine this is the ball for you. #GoGlobal
